An Exquisitely Unremarkable Fall...October Edition

November 5, 2013





October was a very busy month, it just flew by! November is upon us, leaving no doubt that it's fall. There is a definite chill in the air, the leaves have turned all sorts of bold and eye catching colors and have begun to tumble, Halloween has come and gone and Thanksgiving is a mere twenty four days away.

For me, fall has always been a creative time, a month to reset my home as we have come back indoors for the majority of the day. I spent most of October feathering my autumn nest.  Of course, there were a few other fun things tossed in for good measure...did you miss any?










 I uncovered a treasure that shows exactly how long I've been crafting! (shhh!)






 I warmed up a few rooms with some very simple candle dressing.







I "cheated" again to create this sweet sign with a $1.99 wall sticker!




 I shared the "recipe", and I use that term loosely, for our Oreo Banana Milkshake Smoothie






I wished you all a Happy Halloween ~ in a Bah Humbug kind of way!




....and finally, I started getting ready for Thanksgiving....



...by sharing the how to on my Autumn Leaf Trash to Treasure Turkey!

  1. I'm really enjoying all your special touches of Fall, Kim. I loved the kitchen tour and think your stove hood is gorgeous!

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I probably would have turned down the offer of the Friendship Bread starter when my kiddos were little, too, but I never heard of it WAY BACK then!

    1. Thanks Carol! That was sweet of you to pop over! The kitchen seems to be high on everyone's list! Too bad I only have one! :) Maybe I can post about me making a Friendship Bread starter IN my kitchen next!

  2. What a great recap of the month, Kim. I really LOVED the kitchen tour and think it was probably my favorite post of yours for the month.

    I used to make that Friendship Bread with starter way back in the late 70's~ Blessings- xo Diana

    1. Thanks Diana! I really do love the kitchen, too! Of course, I'd like it a lot more if it always looked the way it does in the post pictures and not the way it does right now (dishes in the sink, shoes on the floor, homework and backpacks everywhere else)!! I love your dieting idea~ that mole rat cake is truly icky! Although I am sure that it tastes delicious...um...if you could get the fork past your lips! AND I am pea green over your wreath loot! I NEVER win anything...I think I need to enter more giveaways!

  3. I love your kitchen post, Kim--probably because I love how it turned out, and I love, love, love the red accents! With all of the neutral kitchens around now, I love seeing those pops of color. Dee :)

    1. I agree, Dee! I am always so drawn to those beautiful white on white rooms, but I try it and it just doesn't feel right. I need color! Maybe you and I should just stick to those white pumpkins instead! ;) Thanks for leaving a comment! It always makes my day!

  5. The wreath is lovely and so is the candle with the red trim surrounding it.

    1. Thank you Patty! I like the candle with the red berry vine, too...sometimes the simple things are the most stunning!

  6. Well, you know how much I love your kitchen, Kim. And the red accents are delicious. So my vote for a favorite has to be that. I'm just really happy that I found you so I can get great ideas for my own nest. Your candles, for example would definitely brighten things up here. (No pun intended.) Hugs, Nancy.

    1. I am afraid November is going to whiz by, too, Diane! I haven't even started folding book pages for your pretty paper Christmas trees, yet! I thought for sure I would be done with them by now!!

  9. Hi Kim,

    All of these posts were pretty, but for me, it's a no brainer: THE KITCHEN! Reasons are all obvious, (if you know my style and favourite colours). Just a charming place to hang out and chat over coffee!
